Update | Both Alonso and Ocon fit for Imola Grand Prix

We might see Daniil Kvyat in an Alpine car this weekend. On social media there are several rumours that Esteban Ocon or Fernando Alonso have tested positive for coronavirus. The French racing team keeps its lips sealed for now.

Several Italian media outlets have reported that one of the two Alpine drivers is suffering from a coronavirus infection. Daniil Kvyat came over from AlphaTauri last winter as a test and reserve driver and would be the right person to replace him.

Via Instagram, Kvyat has revealed that he will be at the Imola circuit for this weekend's Grand Prix. This doesn't necessarily mean that the rumour is true, as it happens more often than not that spare drivers accompany the team to the GP's, but it does make the rumour a bit more credible.

This afternoon the press conferences are scheduled. We will find out if Kyvat's presence will be necessary or not for this weekend in Italy.

Update - Gerucht over corona bij Alpine blijkt niet te kloppen

Formula 1 journalist Jon Noble reported on Thursday morning that there is no truth to the rumours of a corona infection in Fernando Alonso or Esteban Ocon. The two regular drivers can therefore simply come into action this weekend at Imola.
